Cyber Integration for Fusion Centers
“This document identifies recommended actions and guidance for state and major urban area fusion centers (fusion centers) to integrate information technology, cybersecurity, and cybercrime1 prevention (cyber) intelligence and analytic capabilities. Development of these capabilities will inform local, state, and national detection, mitigation, response, recovery, investigation, and criminal prosecution activities that support and maintain the United States’ cybersecurity.
This document does not identify additional requirements for fusion centers. Rather, for fusion centers that choose to develop and support a cyber capability, it identifies how the fusion centers can effectively integrate the information, resources, personnel, and expertise of cyber partners, cyber stakeholders, and the cyber community, to enhance fusion center information/intelligence sharing processes. This document also illuminates the value achieved when federal, state, local, tribal, territorial (FSLTT), and private sector organizations work with fusion centers and the many opportunities for establishing relationships with the fusion center.”
